Is this real? Is there such thing as a My Time during work days. In the recent months, since I got to be extremely busy – I am always stucked with back to back meeting. With these type of days – I am always forced to work late, and things piled up extremely fast. The moment I procrastinate or failed to finish a particular task, it gets delayed so long beyond comprehensible. So what do I do?

Well – My Time is a concept that I created such away that I create pockets of time in between different time of the days that exclusively for me. I won’t sit in meetings nor conference calls. I would just focus on the work at hand for my self. This is challenging – but we need to do this to avoid people from disturbing you during work days.

There are few things that I do to get My Time:

  • Block 1 hour in the morning – exclusively for me to plan my day. I won’t attend any other calls nor meetings. This time usually is extremely early which is 8.00am – 9.00am. The time is officially blocked in my calendar.
  • Block 1 hour for lunch in the afternoon – this is to ensure I have proper meal during the day. If I skip lunch – I will be f**ed.
  • Block time to work on a particular task. To do list is great, but blocking your time allows you to manage your day better.

By doing the 3 things above, its just awesome. In addition to having My Time to do my own work, I will also able to judge my workload better by looking at the available time slots for me to do other things. Most days I get stuck with people blocking the whole day for meetings. Yes – it’s great, but if I don’t have time to work on it – no point also!!!
